About Folder Size Explorer
Folder Size Explorer is a free Windows Explorer extension that will calculate folder sizes. Microsoft's Windows Explorer does not calculate folder sizes automatically. You have to right-click a folder and select "Properties" to calculate its size. While this may be acceptable for a single folder it is very inconvenient if you are trying to determine which folders on your hard drive are taking up the largest disk space.
Folder Size Explorer calculates folder sizes and allows you to see which directories are using up the most disk space simultaneously at a glance. A convenient context menu in Windows Explorer - "Scan with Folder Size" makes it possible to list all folder sizes at any time. Folder Size Explorer does not make modifications to the system or Windows Explorer therefore it is absolutely safe. This guarantees that it will not slow-down your system or cause any issues with other applications.
It can save file and folder sizes lists to CSV or XML files that can be viewed in Excel or Notepad. Folder Size Explorer has native 32 and 64-bit versions which guarantees that it will run as fast as possible on your operating system. Folder Size Explorer supports Windows 10, 7, 8.1, 8, Vista, XP, 2008, 2012 and 2016.
Folder Size Explorer is free and does not include any bundles or third party applications - we hate that! As you can see we do not even display advertisements on our web site. Sometimes a warning may be displayed in Google Chrome or Internet Explorer ( Microsoft Edge ), or Windows Smart Screen. This is because we release frequent updates and the latest versions of those browsers will display a warning for newly released files. This warning is automatically removed when the file is downloaded by a fair amount of users.
Many people believe that this is dumb, but that is how latest web browsers and Windows work - you get the same warning everywhere on the Internet. If you have any doubts about our files, best thing to do is to download the file or copy the download URL and scan it at VirusTotal.com. That web site will scan any file or URL with ALL the popular antivirus tools simultaneously.
